If you are in South Molton over the next few days, please do try to pop in to the Christmas Tree Festival at South Molton Parish Church and see if you can spot the Bishops Nympton Primary School tree! The children from classes 1, 2 and 3 have worked really hard making their own decorations which you will be able to see on the tree. The tree is on display at the Festival from Thursday 30th November – Monday 4th December.
Class 1: what a fantastic year we have had! The end of a school year is a time of mixed emotions, happy that we have a nice long break, sad that children are moving on from our classes or from the school, pride in all the children have achieved and excitement at a new beginning and new children joining us in September.
The children in class 1 have worked so hard this year and have achieved so much. It still amazes me how they start school not being able to read and write, yet after only one year they have learnt how to do it! Children are amazing, your children are amazing and they have been an absolute pleasure to teach this year.
Thank you to all our parents for your continued support, it is very much appreciated. We wish you all a wonderful summer and remember…. keep reading!! 😉

Class 1 spent some time finding and naming plants this afternoon. We learnt that some plants have flowers and produce seeds that then grow into new plants. We learnt about the life cycle of a dandelion and we learnt the names of some plants, flowers and trees. We found daisies, dandelions, bluebells and stinging nettles.
We looked at the leaves on our beautiful copper beech tree and the flowers on the horse chestnut tree. Spring is a beautiful time of year to take our learning outside and make the most of our wonderful outside space.
Sadly we found some litter on the playground but picked it up and then used this opportunity to talk about looking after our world and our environment and being responsible. Everyone agreed that we are lucky to have such a lovely school and that we should all do our best to look after it and keep it clean and tidy.
We even found some egg shells.
